About 1000 scouts and students gathered at Thimphu yesterday to observe the International Peace day. The theme of the celebration this year was youth the champion of peace, the event was organized by Department of youth and sports under the Ministry of Education.
The Minister of Education Lyonpo Norbu Wangchuk who was the chief guest at the ceremony said that we should celebrate peace in the country and what we can do to promote peace.
The minister said that whoever job we do let it be teachers, doctors, engineers, ministers, business etc is to make our country better, greater and beautiful. It becomes our responsibility to handover to youth and makes it better, greater, more beautiful and then hand over to your children.
Our children and youths should be responsible good citizen for the better ment of the communities and country. They should each other respect. If they do not know the value of respect, responsibility then they will never become a good citizen.
Lyonpo added that our youths are not giving up. They are not saying they will give up. But there in one in hundreds or one in five hundred who are influenced in gang fights, drinking alcohol, abuse drugs and 99% of us should take responsibility.
The scouts are protector of the country. They help in commu- nity and create happiness all over the world. Every scout will be celebrating this peace day by doing cleaning campaign, planting trees, helping people but now our theme in celebrating this day in Thimphu is by donating blood. Blood donation is the main theme this year. Blood saves lives.
Lots of people will read and share the stories about the activities carried by a scout about their service to the people and country. People should be inspired and determined by the works they do. Scouts can help promoting peace as scout always serves people. They are abiding by the promise, laws so that’s why scouts are called messenger of peace. Scouts are like brothers and sister where there is no negativity. They are loyal and trust worthy, always respectful to others. Always helps to others at anytime so every person who read and share can help promoting peace and happiness in the country.
Some of the students who attended the session said the main reason of this day is to create scout profile. Important thing in scout is the services they give to people and to the country. They can promote peace through organizing events, doing activities and serving public.
On this day the scouts and youth pledge to serve the Tsa Wa Sum with utmost loyalty and dedication and everybody may follow the suit.
